When is a law not really a law? When President Obama decides to enforce it, or not, which of course seems to be how this administration actually operates, or more precisely, how “dictators and tyrants function”.

And so when the Obama Department of Agriculture actually sent a letter to Georgia’s social services agency warning that if the state refuses to grant food stamp benefits to Syrian refugees, it would be doing so in direct violation of the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008.

The obvious hypocrisy not withstanding the letter apparently authored by a government bureaucrat named Jessica Shahin of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program wrote to officials in Georgia; “As long as an applicant submits a SNAP application that includes the applicant’s name, address, and signature, the state agency must accept and process the application to be in compliance with federal law.”

And when it comes too actually following federal law, or enforcing existing federal law, as in the “immigration law”, that’s when President Obama apparently has an emotional block.

However in the wake of the terror attacks in Paris, a November 16th executive order issued by Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has halted the Obama administration’s resettlement program in that state.

Deal is one of more than 30 governors opposing the White House's plan to allow 10,000 refugees from Syria into the U.S. over the next year.

Time Magazine reported on Nov. 20 that a new poll shows the majority of Americans support the use of force against Islamic State group and oppose allowing Syrian refugees into the U.S.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Deal's office was overwhelmed with questions about his position on these issues, with impassioned calls to restrict the entrance of Syrian refugees into the state and follow the decision made by more than half of the nation's governors.

Governor Deal along with the other 29-governors are simply seeking a pause within the resettlement program, to ascertain the vetting process, after numerous reports suggest a high probability of forged documentation within the Syrian refugee population.
